Not too bad for a leisure walk. Few muddy areas but totally passable.

This trail is STUNNING!! If you want a leisurely stroll on a trail that gives off enchanted fairyland vibes...this is it! When you come to the first split, take the LEFT path so you're walking downhill on your way back around. It loops!

Tough mudding on the lake side of the trail. Best to turn around and stick to the top path.

Pretty wide and flat trail, a little muddy. Follows the lake with some good lake views before turning back into forest. Nice trail but nothing spectacular.

Enjoyable hike with somewhat varied views. Wraps around Lake Arthur at the beginning and through a beautiful pine forest toward the end. I cut through the middle at a fork near the beginning of the trail for a bit more of a challenge (a good uphill at this point). Circled back toward the lake to add some distance and then completed as intended. Downsides = muddy toward end and I either got off the trail or it was pretty flooded at one point.

Today the trail was extremely muddy and wet in many places. In one spot a great had flooded over the trail and we had to find an alternate way across. Trail itself is pretty clear and easy to follow. Easy rating is appropriate. We brought our four kids along and they had no problem navigating the trail. I would recommend this trail (if dry) for anyone looking for a leisurely walk through the State Park area. Not very scenic or exciting. But a decent 3.5 loop overall.

This is a very enjoyable trail. It starts out fairly flat and muddy as it skirts the lake, then there is a little climb, flattens out, and down to circle back to the parking lot.

took the stroller for a ride today. this trail had everything you'd want in a hike given elevation change, lake overview, secluded back in the woods. not the greatest with a stroller given its heavily rooted in the woods and some major mud spots next to the lake. would do it again with my 2 year old, just not with the stroller.

was testing out as a running trail and definitely too hilly and muddy... also very secluded.

this is a nice short trail that runs along the lake. I took my five year old on it and she was able to complete it without complaints.
